Xiaomi's Redmi today unveiled the cheapest 5G smartphone in the form of Redmi 10X. The handset marks a completely new start for 5G's popularity, as the company has managed to bring the new connectivity standard to under $ 250. In addition to the 5G, the new handset also has an AMOLED display, which is another achievement in this regard too. The new handset can easily justify this. According to Lei Jun's latest statement, Xiaomi will stop producing 4G smartphones for China by the end of the year. The final barrier was to transfer the new connectivity to cheap Redmi phones, and the Redmi 10X with MediaTek Dimensity 820 proves that we can see Redmi Note phones with 5G connectivity soon.
The Redmi 10X proves that 5G smartphones can reach all market segments.
In addition to its efforts to expand its 5G smartphone portfolio, the company has started preliminary research on 6G in addition to the development of satellite Internet. In a recent Xinhua interview, Lei Jun, co-founder and CEO of Xiaomi, confirmed some of his company's future plans. He also mentioned some of the difficulties they face due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. According to the executive, the 5G will revolutionize the industry with applications such as 4K and 8K conferencing, cloud gaming (game streaming) and autopilot. For this reason, the company will ensure a huge portfolio of Redmi phones with 5G to accelerate the adjustment.
For the COVID-19 victims, the company's supply chain was severely affected. For this reason, it was our 5G handsets in storage. As a result, Xiaomi had to subsidize factories for 250 million yuan to increase 5G smartphone production. However, the company will recover by stopping the production of 4G devices in China. Therefore, the Chinese company will have enough resources to invest in the 5G phones. The company is also focused on new devices with breakthrough technology and IoT devices. Last but not least, the company will work with the Chinese government to build a solid disaster warning system. In addition, it will work in other public service systems thanks to the new doors. Everything will be possible thanks to 5G functions.
Xiaomi will invest in 6G development, just like Huawei when 5G was just a concept.
Unfortunately, he didn't provide many details about 6G. However, he states that Xiaomi has already started preliminary research for the next generation of networks. In addition, the company will continue to develop solid satellite Internet technologies in the future.
